Daredevil stunts & whacky fistfights
Read the previous review. Bobslukycat says it all. You won't need a single brain cell to have fun with this low-budget, screwball adventure. The print quality is good enough.

Non Stop Action And Nonsense
Richard Talmadge is very impressive here as a rough and tumble test pilot trying to retrieve a test plane and it's plans. He and the entire stunt crew pull out all the stops in this little action film. Talmadge would have a long career behind the cameras as well as stunt co-ordinator, etc.
Gertrude Messinger, former child star is bright and sunny as the girlfriend. She is a much overlooked, but talented actress of her day. A low cost Jean Harlow type. The comedy? of Eddie Davis as Berty nearly sinks the picture in the early going, but he manages to pull off the important sidekick duties when the time comes. Davis also a much used and well known man behind the cameras as a director, asst. director, writer and many other hats. during a long career.
On location shooting doesn't hurt this little film at all, in and around L.A.
This a B.B. Ray Production for Reliable Pictures. He's not known for anything closes to this good.
So Surprise! and Enjoy!
